Dropping The Pounds

Everybody is doing it. I've been saying I was going to do it for a while. But now I really am. I was reading Sapphire's page last night, and going over to MamaLaw, it's all over the place how everyone is trying to be better. Plus, I think hubby is planning a little getaway for us, and I can't have my muffin top hanging out all over the beach, and I am not buying a new bathing suit, when I haven't worn the one I bought 2 years ago.

I've been thinking that walking around campus would help drop some weight, however that takes time (and a lot more walking than I actually do), plus I keep forgetting my pedometer. This Friday I'll start a once a week kick boxing class to supplement the walking. I'll be packing my lunch and not stopping at the wonderful dinner I love so much, because even though they have salads, the portions are out of control and I cannot stand to waste food. Drinking more water will also be on the list. It's actually something I should be doing anyways, but don't.

Last night I got off my perch on the couch and did a few crunches. I could feel the tightening immediately. That was all I did, but it was something. I'll get down and do a few more today, before the kids get back. I have decided that there are things I can do that will make it fun and still be healthy and get the kids in on it too. Like jogging while my daughter rides her bike to her friends house (a mile away), we both get a workout, but more than that we get to spend some one on one time. It's a win win. Plus I'll be around for a long time, because my heart will be so strong, and my blood pressure is good.

I've got three lovely girls, and I want to be around for the long haul. So I'm dropping the pounds and really picking up a healthy lifestyle. I hope you'll join us.

Be Blessed

The husband and I are in the same boat. We both need to lose some weight and he needs to bring his blood pressure down.

We've been doing a little on the treadmill since it's too darn hot to go outside (90 degrees last night at 9:00 pm).

I received the prayer beads yesterday - they are beautiful! I posted about them today with a photo and linked to your blog and your shop. I really liked the card that was included - it was very uplifting. Thank you for taking the time to write the note as well :) I appreciate your talent and creativity, as well as the time it took for you to do that.

So sorry about the mistake in the post - I've changed it.

I should know better than to do more than one thing at a time.

Good luck with your new healthy lifestyle. I have been changing my habbits too. It will be worth all the hard work.
